Thanks to Block Club for writing about Major Taylor Trail and other South Side trail projects on July 6.
SOUTH DEERING — Local leaders from Beverly to the Southeast Side and beyond are pursuing a plethora of projects that would make it easier for South Siders to bike in their communities — and across the Chicago area.
The first-ever county-wide bike plan, released in May, calls for the creation of a “low-stress network” of trails and dedicated lanes for bikes with a focus on Cook County’s underserved communities.
The Lake Calumet bike network study is underway as part of that larger plan. County officials want residents to weigh in on a survey on how to make biking safer from 95th Street to Sibley Boulevard, and from the Indiana state line to Michigan Avenue.
